Halloween Cameo Caper 2013 .... where do YOU want to go?

Postby Hogan » Sat Jan 26, 2013 10:46 pm

Aaaand... here we go again! :-)

The 2012 Caper has mostly run its cause by now though there, true to tradition, still are at least one comic that still has some Capering to do! Considering all the maginificent work put forth and the general interest in the project, I have no qualms with starting up the discussion for the possible setting of the Halloween Cameo Caper for 2012! :cheers:

But first, the also traditionally... What's a Halloween Cameo Caper?

The Cameo Caper is a, by now, old annuarly tradition (5 years+) where artists and their like get together, trying to get a multi-webcomic (no kind, style or hosts bared) cameo caper running through the month of October (though starting before and taking it ways beyond is not unheard of... far from), culminating on Halloween Eve, October the 31st) where, hopefully, everyone will have one major hell of a Halloween Webcomic Party for everybody participating!

The original and basic concept is that, at the date of Halloween (or the day closest to, taking updates schedules into accounting), the particpating artists post a strip (canon, none-canon, filler etc.) on their site or here in the forum, showing their characters and as many characters from other comics as possible, having fun and celebrating the Halloween in the chosen setting. Thats the concept you sign up for! One strip at the day of Halloween! No more, no less... :)

BUT... nothing prevents, and nothing HAS so far prevented, any and all participant from creating whole storylines centered around the event, storylines the go way before and beyond the month of October and Halloween Eve. Furthermore there's nothing to prevent the participating webcomics from joining up and forming crossovers with each other for the sake of the event, exactly like it has been done before! Actually... its only recommended, but not a demand ;)

The previous years have been varied but usually great experiences, and we hope to see many new and old faces in the Cameo Caper for 2013, getting together for yet another memorable event! :cheers:


But first, before anyone signs up for anything... we need to decide where to host the Caper of 2013!

In 2006 the first year the Caper went to the town of Shelterville in the old Wild West, 2007 went to Disneyland orbiting a faraway planet in the near future, in 2008 a a zombie-filled mall was throughoutly thrashed, 2009 gave hauntings of castle of Overlook a bad reputation and 2010 gave the crew and passengers of the spaceship NCS Nostromummy a few last days of their life to remember, in 2011 Time finally caught up with the secluded and Dinosaur filled Valley in the Hillsfar Mountains and 2012 brought murder to the interdimensional nexus of Tyrion!

Which place shall we this year warn ahead so they can evacuate ahead of time?

The following is a list of hithero suggested places to hold the Caper, compiled from over the years...

    20's Chicago
    Ancient China
    CameoComic / The Dragonboard
    Earth's Core
    The Middle Ages
    Battle of the Bands Setting
    In a Pyramid
    Under the Sea/ R'lyeh
    The Northpole/Antarctic
    Pirate Bay
    Comic Convention
    Candyland
    The Net

Feel free to come up with any imaginable idea that can suggest a fantastic and interesting idea setting where to host the Cameo Caper of 2013! This thread is for collecting those suggestions as well as any discussions, and you don't have to even think about signing up for the Cameo Caper just yet, just feel free to take part in choosing the place!

The discussion will come to an end at the 28th of April, after which point a poll will be set up, a poll featuring the 10 hottest topics of the thread for everyone to vote on to get the final result...

When the setting has been chosen, a more detailed campaign for the exact location will be provided... so therefore DO come up with various ideas while suggesting and voting... everything helps to make the setting as memorable as the previous ones!

Also, again, no matter if you plan on participating or not, you are welcome to give your 5 cents with regards to ideas for the place, setting and everything else... its appreciated! :)

------------------------------------------------
Edit:

Aaand... the deadline for suggestions has been reached and its time to start voting on the runners up as show in the poll!

As always, anyone associated on this forum can cast their vote, no matter if they plan on participating in the event or not, and the more who give their votes, the better!

Sign-up's for the Caper CAN be done at this point, but please don't do so unless you are 100% sure you can participate no matter the setting chosen

Poll will close at the end of May, giving people enough time to sign up and start planning before the event starts in earnest.

Happy voting!

Sort of location-agnostic, I have to admit the most fun for me (to read and participate) was Shelterville. Not so much because of the WHERE but because I approached it as an invite to a cross-over party. The deep plotting and the like can be interesting, but as most of us just don't have the resources to really tie plots together well (with thorough prior planning, etc) the more spontaneous the event can be the better!

All this IMHO, of course.

I also seem to remember the setting of "On/In the Internet" being floated last year and I thought a Matrix/Tron style theme could be neat.

Can't wait to see where this goes!

Hmm, Not feeling any of the options at the moment. Though was thinking an abandon summer camp and due to all the crazy paranormal activity, invites were accidently sent to the various participants, looking for help dealing with the various and vague supernatural problems with the promise of a party afterwards.

Abandoned Haunted Summer Camp? Must say I really dig this concept, this one will certainly go on the list when its time for the votes! :cheers:

I say we go to Cameo Comic, invade Scale's old apartment and make her cook us a dinner. A nice quiet place with beer and wine. :P

You know someone will make a big storyline out of it. It happens every time. I was just the main perpetrator for 2012. Luckily, I'm involved in a crossover this year that might distract me from doing anything too convoluted for the Caper. I still want to be a part of it, and kinda want my crossover to spill over into it, but we'll see. If the crossover does make it into the Caper, it could simply be my own thing, with the other characters likely being more of background characters.
All the bad things in life only help you appreciate the good even more.

Based on how the participants' usually take the place at the gunpoint... whereever the most chaos and mayhem can be caused! :twisted:
